                Comments about Type II Near-Shore Buoyant Vests:

                Perfect for our needs as we don't plan on getting in the water in the first place and secondly we don't go more than a mile from shore and would not be depending on this vest for an extended period of time, just enough for help to arrive or correct our boat and get back to shore.

                      Bought this for my husband to wear while paddling. He fell in several times and this held up nicely. Stays put while he paddles! Solid design, I prefer it over many brands of standard orange buoyant vests.
